Tyson's Run Film Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I was allowed to preview this film in exchange for my review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. 

Tyson's Run is releasing March 11th, 2022 in theaters nationwide. I was very excited to see this movie as the main character, Tyson, is a teenager on the autism spectrum. As a mom of a teen on the autism spectrum, I wanted to make sure the autism mom voice was heard. I was amazed by the sensitivity shown in the movie--even when dealing with tough themes.

The movie's main focus is Tyson trying to get the approval of his father. I think everyone has felt at one point or another as if they didn't measure up to the standard set by their parents. Tyson is no different, but his autism does sometimes bring a large spotlight on potential disapproval. Some of the scenes where Tyson is trying to make his way and show his father his potential were a little tough for me to watch as I have seen this happen sometimes with other families of teens with autism. It was raw and it was real, but I think others need to see that glimpse into the world of autism and special needs. With autism rates now 1 in 44, we are at a point where everyone knows someone with autism.

The portrayal of the bullying that happens to kids with autism and other special needs was difficult to watch, I appreciated the movie showing the second half of the story. We found that when our son was bullied, there was almost always a kind-hearted person who saw beyond the autism to truly see our son as the wonderful person he is. Those people may not have become best friends with our son, but we knew they always had his back. It is my hope that each of us strives to raise a kind and caring child (like Shannon in the movie) who will stand up for injustice and show kindness. 

The movie features the song If you Believe. It is an original song recorded by four-time Grammy Award-winning Gospel Singer Yolanda Adams. It is beautiful and fits the movie perfectly. This movie overall was one I'd like to watch again and again. Finding a family friendly movie is not always easy but this movie about determination, grit, and faith fit the bill perfectly.
